I’m an evolutionary biologist and population geneticist interested in how ecology, geography, and demography interact to shape genomes and generate biological diversity. Currently a postdoc in Dr. Kimberly Sheldon’s lab at University of Tennessee, Knoxville, I received my Ph.D. from the University of Washington Department of Biology, working in the Klicka Lab.
I’m also a freelance writer and photographer whose work has appeared in the The Los Angeles Review of Books, High Country News, The Stranger, and bioGraphic. I spend a lot of time thinking about the relationships between humans and the natural world, and between science and politics.
